Top Ten Most Overrated Songs

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Don't Stop Believin' - Journey

It's a great song, but come on. It has been overplayed time and time again being features on so many movies, and I personally think that it isn't even journeys best work

Annoying song relegated to bars where drunk girls scream along.

Journey has released better. Nonetheless, the band as a whole is just overrated. - naFrovivuS

So cheesy and packed with every conceivable cliché. This has way less depth than many songs that get absolutely crucified

22 We Are the Champions - Queen

It's a good song but not the best of Queen.

23 See You Again - Wiz Khalifa

This is a good song! Although it might be just a bit overrated. Still, it's great! - micahisthebest

This is not a bad song... It's actually fantastic. No wonder so many people ' love it. - Napstablook

The song is (or was. Nobody remembers it nowadays) overrated by the fact people didn't know other sad songs that were waaay better

Song is super overplayed, plus it fails horribly at being a "sad song"

24 Sweet Child O'Mine - Guns N Roses

Overrated and overused. I hear this song from the radio almost everyday. I mean; this song is only composed of 3 chords and Slash admitted he was clowning around when this song was created. In other words, this song is a joke from the start. Listen to something else for a change. - aeromaxx777

This was #6 on list of best songs of all time on this site. It's a cool riff and it's kinda catchy but SIX all time? It's not even the 6th best Guns N' Roses song, and Guns N' Roses are overrated to begin with. Everything bad about 80s rock is here: hair metal, Robert Plant-wannabe-vocals, repetitive riffs, and lame power ballad vocals.

I like the intro but the words and voice is just rubbish, stairway to heaven is not overrated, which one of you idiots made this list

Awful. - vinniedamiri

25 Single Ladies - Beyonce

If you hate it then you should've put a lid on it!

Hey Kanye your girl Beyonce created on of the worst songs of all time!
Of all time!
Not to mention the video is really stupid. She has no lyrical depth whatsoever with this as a prime example of just how shallow she is.

Annoying, this deserves to be one. - LukeTargaryen

The start of the song has the "woop woop" like Stupid Hoe

26 Crank That - Soulja Boy

Nobody likes it, therefore its not over rated

All the idiots tried to look cool dancing to it and it got big and soulja boy got 15 minutes of fame, and now works at burger king

Pure cancer. One time I saw a guy dabbing to this song, and he called it a "classic". I think I lost brain cells from that statement.

This song sucks! Even if it got 0.001% credit, it would be enough!

27 Fancy - Iggy Azalea

In The chorus that little kiddish voice is somewhat catchy.

CLUELESS

This song is so obnoxious. It sounds like little kids are singing it, if you
call this music, you must be deaf. every time I hear this song I cringe.
I'm sorry, but I really don't like it.

WHO that WHO that I-G-G-Y? YOU SHOULD YOU SHOULD G-T-F-O!

28 Happy - Pharrell Williams

I want to kill myself when I hear this song. Apparently it almost "gave peace" to the world, and let me tell you: A world that had world peace because of Happy, is a world I would hate to live in. I don't care how many wars wouldn't start.

Because I'm crappy! (Clap along if you feel this song is overplayed)

Almost everyone that I know loves this. I hate it. So overplayed! - RiverClanRocks

I Rather Play Sonic 06 Than Listen To This Piece Of $h! t - VideoGamefan5

29 Fight Song - Rachel Platten

It's so amazing that this song received so much praise and hate at the same time. If you go to the comment section of the music video for this song, you'll see tons of admiration for this song's "inspirational" message and when you look in places like Worst-Songs-of-2015 lists, this song gets so widely hated. Even a handful of Hillary Clinton's (who actually used this song for her speech) staff members hate this song. - NiktheWiz

30 Bring Me to Life - Evanescence

Evanescence is a great band. And I understand that a lot of people love this song (I do like it also). However, I don't get why this song gets so much praise. I mean, I see that song getting a lot of views on YouTube and being number 1 on lists of "best evanescence songs" all around the internet (even on TheTopTens). There is a lot of songs from that band that deserves more praise than this song (The Other Side, Like You, Your Star, Going Under, My Immortal (my favorite), Everybody's Fool, Lithium, Sweet Sacrifice, Call Me When You're Sober, etc). Overrated doesn't means bad, it's just that it gets too much fame/praise. I like that song but really, better than My Immortal, Going Under and Everybody's Fool? Never. - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

This song is good, but it will never be as much of a masterpiece as My Immortal.

I hate the piercing, forced screaming voice of the fat emo who sings this.
I can not even take this band serious. All songs sound the same and have pretty much the same lyrics.
But hey, emo teens don't demand high standards, huh?

Never understood how anyone could like this song.
It's absolutely overrated. Sounds like an Avril Lavigne song.

31 We Will Rock You - Queen

I swear to god, I got so mad when I saw Bohemian Rhapsody on the list (their best song, as rated as it needs) but not We Will Rock You (the MOST OVERRATED SONG IN HISTORY) First off, it's a boring sports anthem, with only drums and one guitar solo. Second off, 90 percent of the people that know this song have no idea what Queen is. Third, good GOD! I expected to see this as one of the top 10, and Bohemian Rhapsody is 7th? I know you can have opinions, but this... Good lord... I'm going to lay down for a second

I actually kind of agree with this. It's really good but I do think it's overrated.

This is such a dumb song. It took no skill to write, takes none to play, and the lyrics are really stupid, too.

You just listen to justin bieber and you don't know what real music is - Th3Zm0nst3r

Simple and overrated. - Disturbedpotato

32 I C** Blood - Cannibal Corpse

Pop and rap songs with "bad lyrics" like Wrecking Ball, Real Slim Shady, All About That Bass and Anacondas all get hate for being dirty while this song which is about masturbatinf and having sex with dead girls anuses and IT'S PRAISED? You guys are hypocrites! - AlphaQ

Since when was this praised? - naFrovivuS

33 Hey Ya! - Outkast

I love this song so much! Yes! Another good song with no bad words! Rap songs with no bad words are cool.

Actually I'm fine with rap with cursing but I said that because I like rap as a whole. - AlphaQ

All it really seems to be is a pop-rap anthem with a message probably no one was expecting (a man wanting to leave his girl). Nonetheless, a catchy song. 6/10 - naFrovivuS

I like this song. It's not that overrated. Yes, the lyrics are repetitive but it has a good sound to it.

Boring, generic song, that really goes nowhere! Except to the part of the brain that triggers annoyance X10

34 Shake It Off - Taylor Swift

How are some of Katy's more underrated songs( Not including her big hits) more overrated than Shake It Off? This song is extremely overrated.

This song should be #1. - railfan99

35 Viva la Vida - Coldplay

I don't like Cold Play, but for this, X&Y, Talk, Clocks and Fix You, I make an exception.

this is a song from a rock band. but is this a rock song all i could hear was the piano coldplay has better songs than this

Coldplay are a great band, but this isn't their best song.

Lol calling Coldplay a "rock" band. Cut me with that edge

36 Poker Face - Lady Gaga

This song makes me puke so much. I think CIA should use this song to torture enemies. If I had to choose to listen this song for half second, or get shot, I would choose the last one. - Disturbedpotato

I can't stand this song it actually sucks. So overrated

Do you want to smoke weed then din

NO why? THIS SONG IS PURE GOLD

37 Heathens - Twenty One Pilots

Seriously? , What's So Good About This Song? , Its Just 2 Mediocre Guys Sounding Dark Song For A Horrible Movie

This is by far their worst song, but people like it because it was in Suicide Squad, I guess..not only does the instrumental suck, but the lyrics too. It's supposed to be a message towards the fans to stop mistreating new fans, but it's so lost in its own meaning, just like Blurryface was. If this is their new style, they're not lasting. 2/10 - naFrovivuS

Awful Garbage, I Can't Go Anywhere Without Anyone Praising This Trash - VideoGamefan5

This is great lol. - AlphaQ

38 Love the Way You Lie - Eminem

Seriously, what's so special about this garbage? Except that two famous sweepers are carrying it

You may think it's garbage because you don't know the storyline. That's why people don't like All About That Bass - AlphaQ

Eminem still is the best. Though I think Rihanna ruined it. Eminem still covered some of it to good.

What?! How can you call Eminem a clown? Eminem, one of, IF NOT THE GREATEST lyricists and musicians of all time! How?! YOU ARE AN IDIOT! YOU REALLY don't UNDERSTAND MUSIC

In terms of Eminem status, I'll say this isn't one of his best. Definitely preferred Not Afraid and No Love. - naFrovivuS

39 Royals - Lorde

I don't understand why everyone is all like " ROYALS IS LIKE MY FAVORITE SONG" and how it's even "real music." Like come on there is way better songs too. This didn't even deserve to be #1. Same with Roar.

Royals is Extremely overrated. - Gamecubesarecool193

I HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE this song! From the other stuff I've heard from Lorde, I can easily say that she will be an artist that will make no good songs in my book.

I Despise this song. There's very few songs that make my head hurt to the point where I wanna die, and this is one of them. Stupid, egotistical, meaningless lyrics, bad instrumental and a talentless "singer". This is the kind of song I would use as torture.

40 Watch Me - Silento

Now watch me whip? Now watch me Nae Nae? Its like a conversation between a horse and its rider. The rider says to watch him whip and then the horse says to watch him Nae Nae.

Why do people like this song? It is overrated because this song is so bad it doesn't deserve a rating above.5/10 - christangrant

Crank That is overhated for sure. This is even WORSE and less hated. I'm confused right now...This song deserves to be hated the most. - AlphaQ

This is 40? This should be #2 - HollyleafOfThunderClan
